Writing songs is one of the most immediate, effective and original forms of communication. Writing is the transmission of our feelings, our passport to reach people's hearts. But to be "someone musically" it is essential to cultivate one's difference and originality, putting oneself on the line.
The attention will be focused on creativity and communication; bringing the listener into his own world, soliciting his emotional universe and creating affectivity and empathy is a path that passes through the knowledge of ourselves, the study of compositional models suggested by the history of the song, and the refinement of tactics and strategies of musical writing in continuous transformation.
The lessons will unfold through a parallel path of extremely dynamic technique and emotionality, of continuous and virtuous interaction between class and teacher, which will allow each student to absorb knowledge but at the same time to draw out from himself elements and values of his identity. and his artistic conscience. The lesson that comes to us from styles and repertoires that have built our musical conscience will be addressed and at the same time the new frontiers of music will be analyzed through the deepening of the codes of rap and musicals.
Field tests, with individual and collective writing experiments, will be central.
It will be important to address not only the world of words, but also those of melody and rhythm, essential allies of the literary text.
In addition to this trip, the lecturer will provide lecture notes and audiovisual contributions on an ongoing basis.
The highlights of the trip will be:
Mastering compositional models and strategies, moving from brainstorming to more rigorous writing, together with a greater knowledge of oneself, of one's own experience and of one's horizons, will lead to defining one's own writing identity and to being authors with a defined conscience and personality.
